Repository question, for openSUSE 11

For openSUSE 11.0, can the openSUSE 11.1 DVD be added as a repo source ? (the version DVD , e.g. the oS 11.1 DVD is enabled as a repo in oS 11.1)

So, that those updates (e.g. for GNOME, KDE 3.5, etc) that are available in the openSUSE 11.1 DVD can be applied to openSUSE 11 faster & without downloading from online repositories (esp useful for those with Internet bandwidth limitations).

If so, how can this be done ?

Sorry, but are you tried it?
Example in YaST > Software > Software Repositories > Add > DVD?

Thanks for the suggestion, but it seems that the openSUSE 11.1 DVD will not work to upgrade openSUSE 11. Will need to add the repo’s manually.
There are separate packages/repo’s for oS 11 & oS 11.1.

I’ve tried to add the 11.0 DVD to my Repo manager. It has started to read the files from it without any problem - but I’m canceled it - so, I don’t know that after reading the repo files is it works or not.

oS 11 DVD will work with oS 11 & oS 11. DVD will work with oS 11.1 (as a DVD reposotory). So it is version-specific. Hence, can’t use oS 11.1 as a DVD repo for oS 11.0 (pkgs are different).
